The Lonesome Stranger
Droid Immune to critical hits; not subject to
Missiles 20 Replaces attacks: sight; 20 damage to
target and to each character adjacent to that
target; save 11.
The Dark Trooper Phase III is the last in a series
of 3 (meant to be five) possible replacements of the
stormtrooper. Its is a droid, so it may not get the
bonuses of many commander effects, but it is immune
to "one hit wonders". My personal favorite thing
about this guy is Missles 20. He can hit from a
distance, and hit the targets surround what he hits,
good against the Bodyguards.
100- 2 (1/4th your squad)
150- 4 (1/6th)
200- 4.5 Best option
Droid; Missiles 20
Today's mini is pretty cool. He was the first real
serious threat to contain missiles. For 25points you
really are getting quite a package. He can take a
few hits with his 80 HP, and a 17 defense is about
standard for a good droid. The +10 is also decent
for 25 points. Despite that, most people will play
him to use his missiles. I am not an overly big fan
of a single grenade/missile character as saves tend
to work against you when you need them the most, but
it can still be a nice option when facing swarms or
someone with a super high defense.
So why don't we see more of this guy? Simple, he is
a droid in a faction with some of the best commander
effects in the game. He can't get any power boosts.
He can't be swapped with thrawn and his damage
cannot be increased. Being immune to all that means
you generally will have better options to choose
100pts: He in not strong enough to be played here,
but then again most are not.
150/200pts: Here he can be played if you like him,
but as i said you will generally find better pieces
for your army than this guy. He really is a solid
piece, but his being a droid in a faction of uber
commander effects leaves him by the wayside.
